* Many ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' are viewed as this, but a lot can be traced back to at least one real life species.
** What about Bulbasaur and it's evolutions? Is it a toad? A lizard? A dinosaur? A cat? Bulbasaur's Japanese name [[LampshadeHanging even translates to "isn't it strange?"]]
** Nevertheless, it has the king of this trope, Eevee. Thanks to an UnstableGeneticCode, it has at least ''eight'' evolutions, and all of them are as indeterminate as it is. WordOfGod says the original Eevee is inspired by a fox; probably [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fennec_fox a Fennec]] -- compare: [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1195139/Gotta-catch-The-Pok-mon-cubs-receive-public-showing-Tokyo-Zoo.html Fennec pups]] and [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_t3RDd4xvt5Q/SpbuPwFdBqI/AAAAAAAAE_I/tycl5Ot67W0/s320/pikachu.jpg Pikachu]].

** Lugia, a gigantic dragon-bird-monster-thing, has been stated to be this via WordOfGod. It's been speculated by some that it might be based on an albatross, but the resemblance isn't really there.

* The main character in "Moom" which is currently the second animated short by Creator/TonkoHouse pretty much resembles a Literature/{{Cheburashka}} but much cuter.

* Fritz from ''WesternAnimation/TimothyGoesToSchool'' appears to be some sort of badger-skunk hybrid. Official sources (books, episode descriptions) have described as one or the other; not helping is the student teacher, Ms. Appleberry, appearing to be the exact same species.

* The big-eared, fuzzy Mogwai from the ''Film/{{Gremlins}}'' movies most closely resemble a small prosimian primate, like a bushbaby or tarsier, minus the tail(and stubby limbs). In the [[Film/Gremlins2TheNewBatch second film]], Gizmo is tentatively identified as some sort of rodent by a pair of scientists.

* Everyone except Wubbzy itself and Widget in ''[[WesternAnimation/WowWowWubbzy Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!]]'', but it's easy to guess which species each one is based upon.

* Fidget is the only non-humanoid (well, ''less'' humanoid at least; she's about the size of a real fruit bat, doesn't wear clothes, and has paws instead of hands) animal in ''VideoGame/DustAnElysianTail''. Dust has no idea what she even is until an NPC identifies her as a "nimbat".



* The Mows of ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures''.
** Not quite- they're actually based on Mab, a {{cat|Girl}}, specifically a "fae kitty"

''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures'' are the result of an experiment GoneHorriblyWrong involving Mab's DNA. They're essentially tribbles with faces, antennae, and squirrel-like tails who eat inanimate objects.
